Presentation: The Nordic Secret: A Deliberately Dev. Society
The Nordic countries managed the transition from pre-modern to modern societies better than any other societies. This was to a large extent due to the focus on large scale inner development programs implemented 100-150 years ago. The aim was to create “Deliberately Developmental Societies”. The models of consciousness development used 100 yeas ago were strikingly similar to contemporary ego-development models.
